30 Coins (30 monedas)
We’re back and we’re taking up a new hobby. Esoteric numismatology isn’t for everyone, however. Unfortunately, eldritch coins have steep prices, and not just financial ones. Our lives have become complicated ever since we picked... The post 30 Coins (30 monedas) appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Morality in the Cthulhu Mythos
We’re back and we’re in a moral quandary. It’s fair to say that the gods and monsters of the Mythos are beyond human comprehension. The problem is that we are human (or at least that’s... The post Morality in the Cthulhu Mythos appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Morality in RPGs
We’re back and we’re sitting in judgement. Unfortunately, it turns out that judgement doesn’t make a very good seat. Next time, we’re bringing cushions. The topic of morality in RPGs shouldn’t be a comfortable one,... The post Morality in RPGs appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Strange NPCs – Louis Wain
We’re back and we’re trying our hands at cat breeding. According to these instructions we received from Louis Wain, the secret is electricity. The cats don’t seem to happy about this, even if it does... The post Strange NPCs – Louis Wain appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Y’golonac and The Revelations of Gla’aki
We’re back and we’re catching up with our reading. Until recently, we thought we’d seen the most sanity-blasting fanfic the internet could offer. Between terrible prose, wooden characters, and unacceptable levels of horniness, bad fanfic... The post Y’golonac and The Revelations of Gla’aki appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Mythos Deities: Gla’aki
We’re back and we’re holidaying at Deepfall Water in sunny Gloucestershire. The area may be a bit rundown but you can’t argue with these prices. Buying a house here cost us less than a week... The post Mythos Deities: Gla’aki appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Loot
We’re back and we’re building up our hoards. All this loot is nice and shiny but it’s not especially comfortable. We wonder how dragons can sleep on their treasure without putting their backs out. Maybe... The post Loot appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Media Catch-up – Books
We’re back and we’re making like bookworms. This is easier than it might seem, given that bookworms don’t really eat books — just their bindings — and aren’t even worms. Then again, they don’t read... The post Media Catch-up – Books appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

The Night House
We’re back and we’re taking an almost Lovecraftian interest in architecture. While we’re suckers for a good gambrel roof, these blueprints for The Night House are far more compelling. The Welsh maze designs, the oddly... The post The Night House appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath part 5
We’re back and we’re waking up. It’s been a long old kip, but not that refreshing really. Dreams of being chased by hunting horrors aren’t as restful as we might like. On the bright side,... The post The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath part 5 appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath part 4
We’re back and we’re holidaying in Leng. While it’s not everyone’s first thought for a getaway, we’ve found it really quite dreamy. Leng may have had some shocking reviews on TripAdvisor, but we’re not sure... The post The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath part 4 appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Creating Stories at the Table – With Gaz Bowerbank
We’re back and we’re making stuff up. Sure, it’s a bit disjointed, filled with inconsistent characterisation, narrative dead ends, and terrible jokes, but it sort of feels like a story.

Mythos Deities: Cthulhu
We’re back and we’re lost in reverie. These dreams are really something — so vivid and insistent. We just wish we knew whose dreams they are. Regardless, they’re inspiring us to create strange, wondrous new... The post Mythos Deities: Cthulhu appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Breaking the Law
We’re back and we’re on the lam. Setting fire to all those libraries seemed like a good idea at the time but apparently the authorities disagree. We’ve tried explaining that there are simply some things... The post Breaking the Law appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Peril in Call of Cthulhu
We’re back and we’re in danger. At least, we think we are. Something seems to be at stake, although we’re not quite sure what. Maybe it’s our lives, our loved ones, or some of this... The post Peril in Call of Cthulhu appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Everything is Horror
We’re back and we’re getting scared. Everywhere we look, there’s something creepy hiding in the shadows. Sometimes it seems like there’s a bit of horror in every game, regardless of the genre. Maybe a nice... The post Everything is Horror appeared first on Blasphemous Tomes.

Gozu
